Validating password field

Hi,

<field property="userLogin.password" depends="required,mask">
<msg name="mask" key="errors.invalid"/>
<arg0 key="userLogin.initialPassword"/>
<var>
<var-name>mask</var-name>
<var-value>^[a-zA-Z]+$</var-value>
</var>
</field>

In the above mentioned way I have mapped the password field to required rule and mask rule. The required rule is applied to the password field but the mask rule is not applied when i click the submit button.

regards,
karthik.

Hi,


All regular expressions in the Struts mask rule must start with a ^ and end with a $.
<var>
<var-name>mask</var-name>
<var-value>^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$</var-value>
</var>

And make sure that you define a "errors.password.maskMsg" in your MessageResources.properties file
e.g

errors.password.maskMsg= message.
